Contrary to popular opinion, I do plan on renewing my RCI membership at some point. Its good till 2011, I think. I have gotten all the trades I requested, so I'm sticking with them for a while longer.

Is this offer a deal or no deal?

5 for the price of 3? How could it not be a good deal? You won't see a better one. If you are happy with RCI I'd go for it. I am. I still get the trades I want.

If you're happy with RCI and plan to continue on with them, yes it's a good deal

That last two times that I have renewed my membership, I have utilized the pay for three and get five years. Not only are you getting the two additional years for free, but you are also locking in the membership renewal price for five years at today's rate. I have been an RCI member since 1984. There are some issues at times, but I still find them the most beneficial for exchanging.

Oh Thank You. How did you get this message? If I am not up for renewal, do you think I can add the 5 years? Thanks.

Sounds like a deal to me too. I will call and extend my membership for 5 more years under these terms. RCI isn't a perfect system, but overall it still works very well for me.

Yes you can add to your membership at any time, well at least you always could before. Mine is good until like 2020 or something like that.....

I have to say I have fared best in the last 18 years or so with RCI for exchanges but this new site...well I do not mind the enhancements although everything takes longer but for how long is it going to have problems......yesterday was first time I could do anything with it...hope it is okay from now on...

Too bad they don't have this kind of deal for points. I have to pay a lot for my points membership, $95 a year is the discounted price.

I wish I could talk them into using a lesser week for an exchange I need for Kauai. I see it with my best traders, but I cannot see it with any of my other weeks. I am thinking of begging. :rofl:
